taxes by $600 million. not as much as i would have liked, but we did. tim trying to raise taxes. we also reduced the size of the state work force by 9000. there were over 300,000 net new jobs created. i use all of my time i could for jobs and recruiting investment to virginia. tim was out running around the country advocating for obama's policies as well as raising money and trying to get folks like harry reid and nancy pelosi reelected. when he was governor, over 100,000 jobs were lost. i have worked across party lines. i want to work with republicans and democrats to get this economy going. i think we can find common ground to make sure our tax laws are more competitive and simple. if we do that, i think we will send a message to the world america is open for business again. >> i think what the audience sought is he was asked a question about his senate record and he was talking about being governor. he is running for reelection to the united states senate. he had a fiscal irresponsibility. george came into the united states senate with historic surpluses. we were in great shape. by th
success. you know, they are talking about -- president obama is talking about a tax increase. there are two of things wrong with that. one is that i happen to know where the money goes. and secondly, raising taxes on people is not the answer in washington. i was there when we balance the budget in 1997. and we cut taxes. we did not raise taxes. to give them more money, they will spend it. it will hurt malkin -- small businesses and hurt our ability to create jobs. that is why so many small business people have been paralyzed. and then come the regulations. a small business person, man or woman, it needs to be treated like a delicate flower. you have got to water it, you have got to take care of it called a little loving care. you do not crotchet by somebody that does not understand small business -- you do not crotchet. it is hard to start. it is hard to keep it going. but small business is the engine of economic growth. it is where we get our jobs from. yet, we have all these people in washington who give us this top- down approach to how we will grow jobs. and it is really
, so does our economy. that is why instead of raising taxes, we ought to fix our 72,000 page monstrosity of a tax code, so we can keep jobs here and bring jobs home that have gone overseas. we should repeal the president's health care law, which makes it harder for small businesses to hire. and replace it with reforms that actually the work costs and protect the doctor-patient -- lowers costs and protects the doctor-patient relationship. and instead of getting into high gas and energy prices, let's jump start the development of america's vast domestic energy resources. let's build the keystone pipeline. let's expand the exploration and use of natural gas and coal. these are all good ideas that mitt romney supports. the president obama has ignored or rejected. that is disappointing, especially considering how his policies have failed. he promised to listen. he promised us change. but all we have got is more of the same. more spending, more red tape, more debt and decline. a loss of hope. the united states senate, run by the president's party, has not passed a budget in more th
of amnesia on november 6. all of a sudden romney claims he does not hea $5 trillion tax cut that will raise taxes for the middle-class to the president has a new term for it, he calls a what? romnesia.' it is the most accurate term i have heard in a while. and it is contagious because of a sudden, congressman ryan, the guy picked because of his new ideas about how to drastically cut spending, the guy whose budget passed cutting everything 19% across-the-board, his budget voucherizes medicare. not cut those programs. -- all the sudden, he says now he does not cut those programs. he just slowed their growth. he slows your growth. he limited to $2,500 tax cut that you middle-class parents used to keep your kids in school. taking thousands of the pell grants and knocking people out of college. it is like mitt romney try to convince the guy in the employment line that he did not outsourcing is job offshored his job. the result is the same. job is gone, you have a voucher and instead of a guaranteed medical benefit. now mitt romney is running ads across the country about getting tough on china. t
or regulating drugs as a means of doing both of those? >> i'm all for it. i don't want anything taxed at all, but, yeah, i mean, this is -- we may be getting to a pragmatic kind of prohibition era question where it became expedient to legalize alcohol so that you could be, you know, getting some of the great -- so that the federal -- the government could be getting some of the proceeds from that great cash crop, and, you know, marijuana, as we all know, the biggest cash crop in the country. again, you know, i'm looking for the liberals to step up to the plate here. i hear this thing about, oh, wait until obama's relegislated, he'll stop laughing any time anybody mentions this, the idea of legalization. it's not just a libertarian fancy. in opinion polls and in the voting in referendum in all of the states that it's come up in, it's more popular than gay marriage, more popular than a lot of stuff that moved into the consensus of acceptable discussion. it's only in official in washington that this has not been, you know, accepted, and, by the way, i hate to pick the liberals down one more time
recently would you accept the $1 tax increase for $10 in cuts, and you said yes. dold: sure. >> moderator: somewhere between that and 70/30, i mean, just as a general proposition? dold: well, certainly what i took as a framework in what we did, we laid out a broad framework that was talking about a bipartisan budget that would put revenues on the table and also spending cuts. i don't want to say we'd say it's got to be this or that simply because we don't know what the proposals are going to be. we do face a fiscal cliff, and the only way i think we're going to resolve this problem is by coming together and working together as i've done in this last 22 months. >> moderator: brad schneider, how did you come up with the split? schneider: if you look at what we've had in this past congress, a congress that has done everything but address the challenges we face, you have a ryan plan that not once, but twice my opponent voted for that continues to give additional benefits and cuts to the most fortunate americans, additional subsidies to large oil companies and companies shipping jobs overseas.
and more taxes? or is our future going to be in less taxes, less regulations and more freedom? i believe in mitt romney. he's the right candidate at the right time to be the president of the united states. [applause] you know in the state of florida we have 820,000 people out of work, people who will looking for work, people who have given up looking for work. we need someone who understands how jobs are created. that individuals create jobs not government that creates jobs. [applause] when mitt romney is president he is going to need another united states senator, republican senator from florida. [applause] how many here have already voted? [applause] and for those of you who wake up tomorrow morning and go vote. after you vote for mitt romney go down the ballot a little more and vote for connie mack. can you do that? there are dig differences between senator nelson and myself. he was the deciding vote for obamacare. i voted against obamacare. [applause] senator nelson has voted for higher taxes 272 times. i voted to cut taxes. [applause] senator nelson voted to gut our military. i vote
. and the best way to do that is to reduce the employer's side of the payroll tax. for new job hires. in fact, they did go to a version of that. and but that's an example. the president has other proposals for credits, for particular kinds of businesses to create jobs, a new deduction of salary costs for new hires. or increases in pay. you know, i don't know that the particular designs of these policies from my perspective are ideal. i do know that that's speaking about the problem and saying hey we've got a real problem with job creation. the economy on its own is not doing this for some reason. we will eventually figure out the underlying reason. in the meantime, how do we stimulate it? look, there are other -- i've had this -- at the job summit i had a discussion with alan blinder an old friend of mine. he had a different approach. he said public jobs. public works. 1930s. i don't think we're there yet. i don't think we could ever do it. but we would certainly could -- can justify, and indeed there is a demand for an increased investment in infrastructure across the country. and they creat

they have to pay, we pay more to government than any other major country in the world. the corporate tax rate is down to 25% in europe. ours is 35%. canada brought the tax rate down to 15%. businesses go there to save money. what i will do is bring the corporate tax rate from 35% to 25%. now, you might think -- [applause] >> same time, we'll have to get rid of loopholes and extensions and we need the revenue we need. but we need to bring the rates down and make ohio a more interesting place to invest. small business doesn't pay the corporate tax rate. it is 35%. i want to bring down the individual rate as well. thoseen -- i'll make proposals to congress on day one. things i do -- we will put america on track for a balanced budget. we can't keep spending more money -- [applause] >> what we talk about, these topics like big government policy -- they effect the lives of individual americans. this is about you and your life. say you are a senior -- i see a senior waving. i meant senior by age, not senior in high school. let's say you are a 65 year old or older. and when you -- when you get a
literally decades of research trying to lower at the extent to which measures like an earned income tax credit and temporary assistance for needy families, medicaid and education programs he will tell me if he is right. and their impact on people's lives. it is far from sucking the life out of them. i would argue that not only do these provisions critically offset multiple failures embed, did they provide people with the opportunities they need to achieve the vocation and faith that absence this support there are have a much harder time and cheating. i want to reflect on michael harrington and how big is the current economic divide and as a different now versus when he broke the other america. the economic divide is much lighter now than it was then. the most recent year was 2007. 23% of income accrued to the top 1%. back in the early '60s, that was 10%. he was writing about an economic divide where 10% occurred tuesday top 1%. hthe growth of inequality is a major factor of understanding in the quality. this is a dynamic story. it has great barrington area of agreement between charles a
that will make the auto industry strong -- [indiscernbile] he wants sensible regulations. he wants tax reform that will ensure we can get the auto companies back on their feet. he wants to make sure that trade is fair. he wants workers trained to work better for them. he wants their energy costs now. that is what will keep energy -- otter jobs here in ohio. that is what mitt romney is going to. balks, we are in the fourth quarter. the score is tied. we're in the red zone. we got the momentum on our side. are we going to be sure that we take mitt romney over the goal line in the next eight days? ladies and gentlemen, the next president of the united states, mitt romney. b >> thank you. what an avon lake welcome. thank you so very much. thank you, senator portman, and the lieutenant governor has been going with us all over the state. her support means everything in the world. the senator was my sparring partner. he was really strong. i finally -- it is nice not to argue with him all the time. withs good to have withhim me on the campaign trail. we have got to reelect him as the next congressman
, and two-earner families, and people this year very concerned about the increased taxes that we would see come jaber reversed if president obama were to be reelected, as well as the peace -- deep defense cuts of us would impact our area dramatically. george mason's stephen fuller, one of the preeminent economists in the area says the defense cuts could actually cause a recession in virginia and would almost double our unemployment numbers. and va has been very successful in having a low unemployment rate, down 5.7%. but people are very concerned about jobs. jobs are the number one priority and that is what we see people looking at and that is why we are encouraging the numbers and support we are seeing for governor romney this year. host: does your candidate have to win loudoun county to win virginia? have to,don't know we i expect we will. it was only a narrow margin that president obama won loudoun, the last time and it really was an aberration. virginia republicans have been winning loudoun county in 2009 when governor bob mcdonnell won this area, and then in 2010, of course our congre
, when harry reid stands up and says, hey, i heard a rumor that mitt romney didn't pay his taxes, and mitch mcconnell stands up and says i'm going to make you a one-term president, they're acting like kindergarteners. we need new leadership that will say we are now working for the american people. forget politics, forget party. it is time for us to move forward, and when i'm back in washington, i promise you i'll work with either president. >> moderator: senator hatch, a rebuttal. hatch: well, i have to say i've had democrats come up to me during that very difficult preconvention time and say you've got to win. you're one of the few guys that can bring us together. it wasn't just with senator kennedy, it was with dozen of others. henry waxman is the most liberal guy in the house of representatives, but he's brilliant. we did the hatch-waxman act that was done right in my office. by anybody's measure, it's one of the best consumer bills in history. i can do it. >> moderator: rebuttal, mr. howell. howell: well, you know, i appreciate our senator talking about the past. he's gone so
are going to ballots at. we need stability in taxes and regulations, and number 4 we need an energy policy like we have done in north dakota. if we support energy, we can reignite america's engine, at the energy independence, national security, job security, and that is what we need to do. >> is interesting what congressman berg says. if you look at the time he served in the legislature, it is roughly equivalent, 4000 percen $. quit talking about harry reid or what ever is. i was not in the senate. i think it is atrocious we do not have a budget. that is the reason we do not have a budget is because both political parties refused to sit down and refuse to solve the problems. there is excellent documents out there, but i believe we have need a balanced budget amendment because the and the way congress will balance the budget is that they have to. that is the path forward for our people and for our country. we need to be strategic. congressman berg voted for sequestration, a disaster, a disaster for defense and jobs trip we need to do everything we can to do this the right way, and that is t
enough. we have to much burdensome regulation. we still raised taxes during this recession which we drove back. personal income tax and we need to create a stable business environment. we have not done a good enough job creating that environment and that is borne out by the numbers. >> where do you stand on your blueprint for delaware? >> we have implemented the majority of items in their and we have more to go. some of them we did not have the resources. i said we ought to create a delaware version of a cops bill. we have made progress there as well. it is not spin to the hundreds of workers were back at the refinery. it is not spin to the people who decided to expand in delaware. it is not spin to the folks at foxfire printing who are adding dozens of jobs. it is not spin to the people at jpmorgan chase. these are real jobs, real families being put back to work. >> fill free to offer your opinion. >> 18,000 additional individuals who have dropped out of the work force, people who have taken part-time jobs, we can argue back and forth about the numbers but those people go to the polls an
has paid much attention. but unless nothing is done before january 1st, we are going to see taxes rise on most people because that's the end of the payroll tax cut that president obama and congress agreed to. that also means that the end of the bush tax cuts, not only for people over $250,000 of income, but also everybody else who were to some extent, their taxes were also reduced by the bush tax cut. the alternative minimum tax, that also would kick in. there's no alternative to the alternative minimum tax on the table. so you have the typical family after january 1st seeing a tax hike in the range of $1500 to $3500 for the year 2013. now, i expect congress is going to do something, if it doesn't act before january 1st, it's probably going to act sometime in january and then make what they do retroactive to january 1st. >> all right. looking at the long-term and the short-term. we're going to know what those jobs numbers are tomorrow. great to see you, as always. thank you. >> thanks, thomas. >> so just to point out again, we are awaiting for live remarks from the president as he dise
statistical interesting facts are that we are one of the least taxed states in the nation. the least. we have no income tax, no sales tax. the democratic and republican candidates will pledge on that issue, saying they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue. host: neil levesque, about the recount laws in the state of new hampshire. is it possible that there could be a recount in this state and what are the rules for that? guest: we have specific rules for the state. we have a fine secretary of state, bill gardner, quite experienced in this. he's the person who has been the keeper of the flame for the new hampshire primary. we had a famous account here in the late '70's with senator john durken who recently passed away. frankly, i don't see it coming down to that. we will see what happens on tuesday. i think other states may be more likely to have a recount and new hampshire. host: do you have voter id laws? guest: yes, and there's some controversy. the legislature passed a voter -- a new voter law that required peopl
with the increase taxes that we would see, do you reversed. as well as the deep defense cuts, which is something that would really impact the area dramatically. george mason and stephen fuller, one of the preeminent economists in our area said the defense cuts could cause a recession in virginia and almost double the unemployment numbers. bridget has been several -- rigid has been scary -- very successful in having a low unemployment rate. jobs is the number one priority. that is why we are very courageous that the numbers of supporters in for mitt romney this year. >> does your canada have to win the county to win virginia? guest: i don't know we have to, i expect we will. it was only a narrow margin that president obama won loudoun, the last time and it really was an aberration. virginia republicans have been winning loudoun county in 2009 when governor bob mcdonnell won this area, and then in 2010, of course our congressman frank wolfe, he is extremely popularhe is of course on the ticket this year. he always wins resoundingly. in 2011, we swept all of the state and local seats here in this y
go away. we would be able to tax it. if you look at the states that have medical marijuana in this country it is now understood that the marijuana legalization is helping lift those committees out of their own recessions. >> is it time to end the prohibition? >> yeah, i think that should be respected. i have had the occasion to hear from the sponsor of that bill who has now passed away. but i think everyone is familiar with people who are surfing from terrible diseases and pain and the legislature here has proved that with the obvious safeguards. i think there has got to be a way to accommodate the medicinal use of marijuana. >> would you remove marijuana from schedule one? >> i don't know if that's the only way to do it but if it is then yes. >> the governor has asked the federal government to do. mr. doherty how do you feel about continuing the prohibition of marijuana? >> you're talking about the drug wars and the violence associated with drug wars. and superintendent of the police before i retired we took down the largest seizure of cocaine. >> you made a career out of
. the wealthiest americans got tax breaks they did not need. companies enjoy tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas and insured that oil companies and wall street were given free rein. folks got to play by different set of rules than the rest of us. the result was falling in comes and record deficits and the slowest job growth in half a century. and an economic crisis that we have been cleaning up for the last four years. so here is the thing. we have tested both theories. we have tested both visions. one worked really well. one worked really badly. romney has been using all of his formidable talents as a salesman to dress up the very same policies that toppled the country and that we have been cleaning up after, he is offering them up as change. he is saying he is the candidate of change. don't boo, vote. vote. let me tell you, colorado, we know what change looks like. we know what is going to help the middle class. we know what is going to grow jobs and reduce the deficit. governor romney is not it. giving more power back to the biggest banks is not change. leaving millions without health insuran
to start paying taxes in both states. ohio? >> ohio remains beyond romney's grasp at this point in large part because obama is doing better there with white voters than he has across the country, and in the northeast of ohio, the auto bailout made a difference i. it is so much of a problem that rob portman, introducing romney in defiance, ohio in front of a huge crowd, said that "we have got to talk about this auto bailout tonight." they are still trying to explain. >> can romney win without ohio? >> yes, but it will be a tough one to reach. but it is still very close race. >> virginia? >> virginia will still probably end up in obama's camp. >> i look at the polls, and romney is up on average -- >> you can take your calls in virginia, because another poll shows obama is up in virginia. even with the heavy onslaught by romney, it still shows the northern virginia area still pretty much supports barack obama. >> new hampshire could be in play. >> new hampshire traditionally was a republican state. it only presidentially became a democratic state recently . >> then bartlet came along. >> th
-class tax cuts so they are no longer held hostage. you're willing to join majority and hold him hostage and not giving it should assurance. i want him to have that i want a farm bill passed so our farmers now delayed olympic i want to stand with our seniors and make sure that we don't balance the budget on their backs and break the promise to medicare we had to i believe mitt romney has ideas as well. i'm not so my way or the highway that i can't look at people objectively and go with what i think is best to every issue that comes before me, my question will be, what's best for this district. that's how i've operated and i continued to do so as a member of congress next year. >> just to be quick on your voting for president obama? hochul: i've said that before, yes. >> okay. there is another question on the floor. other congresswoman to mr. koh, if you will. hochul: chris, i joined mitt romney, president obama, kirsten gillibrand come when the long and many others in full disclosure because i put transparency is important. full disclosure of personal tax return by putting them online so
in the state either leading the fight to cut the payroll tax for millions of americans and in pennsylvania so they could of dollars in the pocket to be doubled to invest in the economy, trade adjustment when the workers lose their jobs because of the unfair foreign competition and i let the fight pass that legislation given the training they need to get back on their feet. the so-called dredging plastic the deepening of the channels on was the key player in getting the most recent funding for that so getting results is key for the economy, and i have the honor to have served the people of pennsylvania to have earned their trust and i would ask again to have the opportunity to earn the trust and i would ask for your vote on november 6. thank you. >> moderator: speed become a gentleman that concludes the debate and we want to think the candidates for taking part in this important program. we also want to think of course monica malpass and vernon odom from action news and thank you for watching. now we have these final words from our co-sponsors and thank you so much for being here. >> i of the
in virginia and ohio that they will have to start paying taxes in both states. that's run the table at a grant states, mark -- let's run the table of battleground states, mark. >> ohio remains yond romney's grass at this point, a large part because obama is doing better with white voters that he is across the country, in large part in the north and west of ohio and northeast of ohio, the industrial belt where the auto bailout made a difference. it is so much of a problem for romney there that rob portman on thursday, introducing romney in defiance, ohio, to a huge crowd, said, "we have got to talk about this auto bailout thing tonight." they are still trying to explain it. >> can romney win without ohio? >> yes, but it is a tough one to reach. if obamacare is ohio, he will carry it was gone -- if obama carries ohio, he will carry wisconsin and it will be a difficult reached for romney. >> a virginia? >> virginia will still probably end up in obama's camp. >> i just look at the polls when we started the program. romney is up by one pnt or two. >> you can pick your polling and in virginia, becau
that's different from the tax reform that's needed for the nation, when we look at the border we need comprehensive immigration reform. as a troubled border and meet with the agricultural folks and ranchers, we have a workforce problem because the immigration system is broken, the visa system is broken, we can't get workers to go back and forth, it takes hours to go back and forth. these create an impediment to commerce, so we have to be able to provide a workforce that can move back and forth very easily. and right now, we are not able to do that because of all of the impediments that aren't there not by having an effective comprehensive immigration policy. so that becomes an economic issue as well. >> some of the issues have to do with the issue that was raised here with regard to being near the border. the work that comes on and being especially susceptible to the national trends when it comes to unemployment in the economy. we need to do some things desperately here like a commuter plane that will make it easier for labor to come across from the daytime and go back at night. that'
frustration. >> this is barbara on twitter. how do you respond? correct on the tax cuts. i am a republican for my issues which are limited government and lower taxes and less regulatory environment. i think in colorado where you find is you move west across the united states. the republican voter is a closet-libertarian type loder where it is limited government. it is an old west at age, keep government out of our lives. you see democratic voters as evident by our governor who moved more toward the center. if they could have another moniker it would be the common sense party. limited government and less washington, d.c. involvement. >> the governor is a democrat. what is the makeup of the state legislature? guest: we have a slight majority in the statehouse so we control the state house. in the state senate you have a slim majority. our attorney general and secretary of state and state treasurer are three other statewide elected officials. the governor, democrat who is very popular is obviously a democrat. it is representative of the voting population which we are helter-skelter and we hav
? >> the tax policy for the u.s. -- there is no reason why good tax policy at the federal level in combination with getting dollars here would help bring jobs back to this district. i do not see anything wrong with that. >> is it futile to expect a congressman to be able to increase and women's in his home state other than your efforts to bring home the federal bacon? the grants? >> part of the work of congress is to work with the delegation to bring resources. we have brought over $100 million, working together to bring federal money. there are things we can do. i serve on the small-business community in the house. we have to focus on issues like access to capital for small business. we have to continue with regulatory reform. i have put forth an important engine to called making america, a set of bills to rebuild profiling manufacturing, american manufacturing, and tax breaks shipping overseas. stop the chinese from cheating in their currency to level the playing field. infrastructure. we need to rebuild our roads, bridges, ports, transit systems. we need a modern version of the wpa. if we w
his funding. it is something i would pledge not to spend. almost half million dollars in tax payer funded mail. to communicate with constituents. let the candidates will respond in an alternating fashion to the questions. ms. bustos will answer the next question first. >> everyone is talking about cutting federal spending and reducing the federal deficit. i will let for both of you to talk about programs are spending in the 17th district that he would be willing to sacrifice and help lower the federal deficit. >> the budget is the defining issue. i see it as getting down to priorities. we obviously have a budget problem. we have to balance our budget. how are we going to do it? on the backs of seniors? as my opponent opposes, where it would charge those of medicare and extra six to $400 a year. i talk to people all over this district. they cannot afford an additional $6,400 out of pocket. are we going to do it on the backs of workers such as those upton to freeport to jobs are getting set to china? because there are tax incentives to do that? or are we going to continue to give tax
of appearances. i'll tell you, the crowd behind me is getting excited, ashleigh, because air force one is taxing over towards us where president obama is going to be coming out shortly and making his remarks. yes, paul ryan has been an asset to governor romney. it's why some are saying the race here has been pretty tight, although there is a small lead, a consistent lead, for president obama. today we saw "wall street journ journal" nbc news poll, three points up the president is here in wisconsin. yesterday there was a poll in milwaukee, a marquette university poll that had the president up by much more, eight points. you talk to the obama campaign, they'll point to that marquette poll and they'll say it's more accurate. it seems likie internal polls ae in between the two. the bottom line, while he has a lead that is significant, you have to pay attention to it, it's not quite comfortable. that's why you're seeing president obama here today. we saw joe biden here last week. but paul ryan was here yesterday. mitt romney will be here tomorrow. bill clinton last night and this morning. there is a
's plans. which boils down to a tax cut that he can't pay for. we can look at these polls a million different ways. they all say something different. at the end of the day, what we're focused on is getting the president across the country. meeting as many voters as possible. and investing in that ground game, ohio, florida, the first day of early voting in florida yesterday, record numbers of people are coming out to vote. there's a sign behind the president's re-election. there's energy on the ground. we're a little than a week out. we're confident. >> we're also seeing newspaper endorsements. president obama getting the endorsement of "new york times." several nums in ohio. the big surprise this morning, "the des moines register" hasn't endorsed a republican since 1972 richard nixon, they endorsed romney, saying that he offers a fresh economic vision. it said that barack obama rocketed to the presidency from relative obscurity with a theme of hope and change. a different reality has marked his presidency. his record on the economy the past four years does not suggest that he would
reduced taxes, and eliminate the death tax in ohio. the has been the biggest job trend in ohio and anywhere else in the nation. i think the governors are leading the change effort in this country, and have to continue to do that. but the federal government has been an impediment, in many cases, through its regulations and its headwinds. many in the state have predicted them from creating the jobs necessary in this country to push our economy and improve the economy over the next four years. host: breaking news this morning. we have been talking about the jobs numbers coming out today. 7.9%, slightly up from 7.8%, the unemployment rate, from september. showing 171,000 jobs added in october, this according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick, and it was down the month before. but unemployment is staying basically around 8%. if you count the people of -- who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are
of december. we have tax cuts that are about to expire, many of them, and we also have, like you were just talking about the trillion sequester cuts. all these things are happening by the end of the year. what do you think congress should do, do you feel like they should leave everything as is? or do you think, do you have any ideas that congress should put in place that you will put forward when you guys go back in next week? >> yeah, i think that the best way to talk about the tax rates is they're what we've had for 10 years. businesses have made their plans predicated on a tax rate. i don't think we should increase the tax rates on anybody. i don't care if you're rich, middle class or poor. we shouldn't divide up people. we should divide people into two sectors. private sector, public sector. i don't want to grow the public sector, i want to grow the private sector. so that means means, leaving as much money in the private sector as possible. i don't want to tax anybody any more to take any money out of the private sector. why? because that's where jobs have created. we've tried this be
-point plan. those at the top get to play by a different set of rules than you do. they get to pay lower tax rates. outsource jobs, they want to let wall street run wild, make reckless bets with other folks' money. that was the philosophy as ceo, as governor, and as president clinton said, he does have a lot of class, but he's not talking about change. all he's offering is a big rerun of the same policies that created so much hardship for so many americans. and you know, governor romney has been out here making a lot of last-minute promises lately. said he's all about fighting for the middle class. said he would cut taxes for everybody. and ask something from nobody, but the problem is we heard those promises before. keep in mind governor romney lives just a few miles south of here in the state of massachusetts. love massachusetts. but during governor romney's campaign for governor down there, he promised the same thing he's promising now. said he would fight for jobs and middle class families. but once he took office, he pushed through a tax cut that overwhelmingly benefitted 278 of the wea
tax code and to finally reaffirm our commitment to financial responsibility. now, if the president were to be re-elected he would continue his war on coal and oil and natural gas. he would send billions more to his favorite friends and all of this means higher gasoline prices and fewer jobs. today gasoline costs twice what it did when president obama took office. and when i'm elected, we're going to change the course of energy entirely. i know just how much energy means to middle class families in this country. we can help hold down prices in the pump and grow new energy jobs and new manufacturing jobs with my policies. and by the way, if the president were to be re-elected, he's going to continue to promote government and demote businesses. you know -- you know, he put together his own jobs council. business leaders he brought from all over the country. and there are people he picked. you know, it's been nine months since he's been willing to meet with his own jobs council? i see free enterprise as a means for people to fulfill their dreams. yesterday i met with a woman in richmon
barack obama took office, 42% of the taxpayers were not paying any income tax. people in central pennsylvania and all across the t are getting tired of this class warfare. you look at the most wealthy california, massachusetts, maryland. they are the most democratic states. they are the ones that claim help their constituents. they vote republican. why is that? is not because they are wealthy. it is because they have a value system. they do not want government solving their problems. host: thanks for the call. josh, would you like to respond? guest: there are people in his community that may not be paying income taxes right now. the 47% that mitt romney spoke up and that the caller was referring to. it is wrong to cast seniors and veterans aside and suggest they are not paying their fair share. they pay their fair share entity to pay their fair share in other ways. i absolutely and completely reject the claim that mitt romney put forth. it shows how out of touch he is with what is going on in this country an average pennsylvanians. i brought up with terry madonna. pennsylvania is
or not. nobody is everything about mitt romney. he says he is a warning. it shows his taxes so he will not be able to make any fiber repays it. he should make sure if your category:surreal. is the abate issue? clark said ferreira romney replaced taxes. what more does and is the, but from it as the months nature of pixels to the question life. that means they are not the middle class does not have to pretty good benares of the that course of love. >> >> i have heard of the. we would like you to spread across the mud 10 recovery. we a take-out of the poll on the south end of this sense and the hoary them through the internet if beneficial and the huge and benefits and income as ups. 20% of lots of things not. it is not a democrat and republican sunset. it is just enormous so as the weeds to a touch people. >> it sounds more like a sales pitch. thank you for alliances, he and so is an impasse sort of follow. this campaign, as between the mitt romney and the president is the most ridiculous thing i have ever seen. i did not vote for mitt romney in the first plane. i am not voting for
yesterday. the president of using his of parents to accuse mitt romney of raising taxes on middle class when he was governor of massachusetts. the question we are focusing on this morning is, what if there is an election dispute? we are basing it apart on a story that has this. election disputes likely. we already posted the question on the facebook page. some of you have already weighed in on this. give us a call. you can almost -- you can also send us an e-mail or join us on our twitter page. if you remember election night -- or maybe we should say election morning 12 years ago -- let's go back to cbs news's coverage of the race between george bush and al gore. >> let's point out what the television networks are using a pool of data and exit poll of permission and other ever mission have made some mistakes over the night, the big one meeting in florida, first calling it for al gore and then for george bush and calling it back. television and radio networks are not the only ones who had to take some calls. >> this is one that called it for bush. they came out with a new addition, they calle
